"Do you feel lost or misunderstood? Burdened by the weight of your past? Or perhaps you’re feeling paralyzed by fears and anxieties about the future. Maybe you simply want to feel like your old self again, or figure out what a newer healthier version of yourself could look like. Or possibly you just want to find out who YOU even are. Could it be all of the above? This is where I can come in. If you, or you and your partner(s), are feeling stuck in some way: I’m here to help. We can work together to detangle the clutter. I’ll be by your side as you uncover your authentic self and heal from the hurts in your life."

"You deserve to find clarity, healing, and growth. You deserve to be seen and heard when you are struggling. Sometimes, we all need a little help on our path to feeling better and creating the life that we want. Healing is a collaborative process; my role is to help you recognize and shift out of patterns that stagnate your growth and keep you from harnessing your potential in the present moment. In sessions, we explore internally and externally; getting to know ourselves more deeply so we can more effectively cultivate that we want in life. "

"While I approach therapy from a Cognitive Behavioral perspective, focusing on challenging thoughts and changing behaviors, I do so with the primary focus on respect for my patients and their individual issues. I want you to feel supported in session but also know that you will be challenged and tasked with completing goals in between sessions. I greatly enjoy helping my patients reach their own goals to be successful in their life, especially in the areas of social relationships, academics, employment, and self-care."

"**teletherapy available, call or text 661-524-5404** The difficulties of everyday life can sometimes become overwhelming. When on top of those difficulties we add the stresses of illness, anxiety, depression, our identity, our love lives and more-we can easily feel burdened to our breaking point. We just don't feel heard. Sometimes these situations can linger for months or years, making it hard to meet our obligations and live our lives in the way we would like. However, those difficulties and stresses don't need to define who we are-or where we're going. It's my goal as a therapist to help you tell your story."
